Salk Institute for Biological Studies Key Developments

Ipsen and Salk Institute Continue Joint Medical Science Research

Ipsen SA and Salk Institute for Biological Studies announced renewal of their collaboration in medical sciences for another three years. Ipsen and the Salk Institute target to achieve critical insights in the understanding of human diseases so as to develop new therapies for the treatment of patients afflicted with serious medical conditions. Over the next three years Salk Institute scientists will carry out research under the renewed Salk-Ipsen Life Sciences Program. Collaboration in the past three years led to deeper knowledge of how modified viruses can induce laboratory tumour models to better understand human cancer, how human induced pluripotent stem cell neurons may be used to study neurodegenerative diseases, and how tumour cells interact with their tissue microenvironment. The continuing research on these programmes is expected to provide further insights and progress in the development of therapeutics in the fields of oncology, endocrinology and neurodegenerative diseases.
